VLR-1 is a calcium-permeable, non-selective cation channel with an outward rectification, that seems to be regulated, at least in part, by growth factors, like IGF1, PDGF and morphogenetic neuropeptide/head activator. VRL-1 does not respond to capsaicin, acid, or moderate heat, but instead is activated by high temperatures, with a threshold of approximately 52 degrees C. Within sensory ganglia, VRL-1 is most prominently expressed by a subset of medium- to large-diameter neurons, making it a candidate receptor for transducing high-threshold heat responses in this class of cells. VRL-1 transcripts are not restricted to the sensory nervous system, indicating that this channel may be activated by stimuli other than heat. VRL-1 is one of the six members of the vanilloid-like TRP-channel family which is now known as TRPV family.
